Interesting and well sized gallery with a nod to the Tate Modern in terms of location and content. Only down point was expensive cafe: 8 lira for the museum, 8 lira for a coffee.

“A great collection of modern art”
Reviewed 13 May 2010

The Istanbul Modern is a couple of minutes walk from the Tophane tram stop. Entry fee in April 2010 was 12 lira (including audio guide).

I enjoyed the video exhibits near the entrance, and the large collection of modern Turkish art is extremely impressive - surprisingly, for modern art, most of it makes some kind of sense. I felt the temporary exhibitions on the lower floor were less successful.

A bonus if you visit this gallery is the superb cafe, although it is rather expensive. A good place for a special lunch.

“wonderful museum, pity about the overpriced cafe/restaurant in it”
Reviewed 18 January 2010

I fully recommend this place. The only downside is the overpriced cafe/restaurant. I'd eat somewhere else before going there. The views of bosphrous from the museum are breathtaking, so are many of the art pieces in the museum.
